|Bio and Links|
I love genealogy and old cemeteries! I am currently working on restoring an old, "abandoned" cemetery near Pleasant Hill in Pike county, Illinois with my father, Lonnie Robinson, and my good friend, Chris Harris. It is a shame to see the final resting places of the pioneers to this area covered in brush, briars and completely neglected. I need volunteers to help keep these cemeteries maintained and mowed.....|
Many of the oldest gravestones have toppled or broken and I would like to get them standing proudly again. I'm learning the PROPER way through the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency cemetery preservation workshops. It's a lot of work, but it's definitely worth it.
I welcome any corrections, links, etc. to my memorials and I'm always willing to transfer memorials that aren't my kinfolk to an actual relative. I'm sure I've made many mistakes and I won't be offended if you point them out......:-)
If you appreciate seeing your ancestor's burial location, show your support by donating to that cemetery's maintenance fund. There are a few good folks who volunteer to keep the many old cemeteries in good shape by mowing, trimming trees, clearing brush, etc. and a donation toward their costs is a great way to show your support and appreciation! Without them, all the old cemeteries would disappear......(if you don't know where to send donations, please message me and I will find out for you)

|Sarah Barnes||RE: Benjamin Franklin Ator 1840-1921|
Wish I knew who created the gravestone. That census is the only time I see him with Benjamin as his first name. Doncha no the ancestors are laffin' in their graves at the confusion caused by poor spellin' . . . and incorrect records.
Thanks for your help, tho. :)
|Sarah Barnes||Benjamin Franklin Ator 1840-1921|
Just wondering where the "Benjamin" came from. So far I have found no records with Benjamin part of his name.
Is the gravestone incorrect?
Thanks for any clarification.

|James Bruce Ioppini||missing names for Elizabeth Milby|
She had two other children besides Dorothy Mae, One died as a child in 1910 and is buried beside Elizabeth in McCord Cemetery, Perry, Pike County, Il. and the other child was Homer Milby who died as an adult, and I do not know where he died nor do I know where he was buried. I though he was also buried at McCord, but a visual inspection I did when I was there in Oct. 2016 did not show him there.
|Alan Eugene Koch||L. Kern, E. Beasley, J. Beasley|
Thanks so very much for the transfers. The Kern and Beasley families are an important part of my ancestry.
Best regards, Alan
